Why citysiders are escaping the rat race for a sea change

3 min read

Our priorities are changing. The coronavirus pandemic has taught us to appreciate the little things (like the ability to go on beach walks during lockdowns) and the importance of loving where you live. Living close to work is also no longer essential as more and more of us work remotely. The appeal of living in a big city is waning—we’re now putting more emphasis on being somewhere that suits our lives outside of work hours. Our free time (and freedom) has become sacred, and a sea change is the perfect way to nurture a happier life.

Turn those carefree beach holiday vibes into a permanent mood by making a sea change to the Gold Coast. Our latest Mater Prize Home lottery No. 299 will set you up with everything you need to enjoy your new lifestyle, from waking up to ocean views, being within easy reach of the Gold Coast’s top things to do, to giving you a luxurious place to come home to every night.

Ocean and hinterland views

A stress-free way of life

There’s something about being so close to the ocean day in and day out that instantly leaves a person more relaxed. Add to that living in a mortgage-free penthouse with sweeping ocean *and* hinterland views and you will hardly have a care in the world. One of the biggest reasons people leave city life for the Gold Coast is for that feeling of being on holidays every single day. The vibe is buzzing yet laid-back, and very contagious! It won’t be long before you switch gears from ‘go, go, go’ to slow and steady when you move into our Mater Prize Home.

 

Palm Beach

A better work/life balance

All work and no play is so 2019. When you live as close to the beach as our Palm Beach penthouse, squeezing in a beach walk or quick surf during your lunch break is not only doable, but good for the soul. Clearing your mind and doing small things that make you happy throughout the day can also help your work productivity. Plus, instead of wasting time commuting into an office, you can now spend those precious hours before and after work doing the things you love. With three bedrooms, there’s plenty of space to turn one room into an at-home office in our prize home.

 

Springbrook

Nature’s playground is calling

A sea change doesn’t have to mean living a quiet life. On the contrary, being by the beach is likely to inspire you to spend less time sitting still and more time seeking adventures. As cosy as you may be sipping your morning cup of coffee in your 12th-floor penthouse balcony, one look at the beautiful day happening outside and you’ll soon be longing to get out there to enjoy it.

The Gold Coast is one giant natural playground with so many spectacular things to do outside. You can catch amazing waves mere metres from your penthouse doorstep or cruise along on a stand up paddleboard through neighbouring Tallebudgera Creek. (Tip: Use your $50,000 in cashable gold bullion to splash out on a new surfboard and stand up paddleboard. You’re guaranteed to get lots of use out of both on the Gold Coast!). Then there’s the Gold Coast hinterland, which is home to ancient World Heritage rainforests like Lamington National Park and Springbrook National Park where waterfalls, wildlife and walking tracks are in abundance.
